Solo. With help of friend positioned my car where Allt Mhàlagain is crossed by A87 road in Glen Shiel. Started walking at Cluanie Inn and did the South Cluanie ridge. I walked along the old road to where it crosses Allt Giubhais. I climbed up to Coirean Eich Bhric and to the col NW of Creag a Mhàim. Climbed up the ridge to the summit of Creag a Mhàim. Then went back down the ridge and along to Druim Shionnach, Aonach air Chrith, Maol Chinn-dearg, Sgùrr Coire na Feinne, Sgùrr an Doire Leathain, Sgùrr an Lochain, Sgùrr Beag, Creag nan Damh. Descended over Sgùrr a Chuilinn to reach the road a little short of where my car was.pwbellarby21/05/2000
